Pope Francis Urges All Nations To Ban Nuclear Weapons In Annual Speech

By Collin Gossel

Continuing his reign as "cool Pope" last Monday, January 8th, Pope Francis called on all countries to come together and ban nuclear weapons.

Pope Francis made these comment during his annual "State of the World" address to diplomats. Referencing the positions of his predecessor, Pope John XXIII, Francis said: 

Nuclear weapons must be banned.
...
[There is] no denying that the conflagration could be started by some chance and unforeseen circumstance.
